Mulroney Joins Shues For Family Movie
MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING star DERMOT MULRONEY will join brother and sister team ELISABETH and ANDREW SHUE for a big screen sports drama loosely based on events within the Shue family. GRACIE is set in 1978 and inspired by real life events where a 16-year-old girl tries to win a spot on a boy's soccer team after a family tragedy. The lead character will be played by FIREWALL star CARLY SCHROEDER. Mulroney will play her father, while Elisabeth will play her mother. Andrew, who is best known for his role as BILLY CAMPBELL on MELROSE PLACE, will play the coach. He was also a professional soccer player with the Los Angeles Galaxy in the 1990s. Elisabeth's husband, DAVIS GUGGENHEIM, who directed former US Vice President AL GORE's surprise hit movie AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, will direct and produce the film. The film began shooting on Monday (28AUG06) in New Jersey and will be released next summer (07).
